It was a real-life Wolf Creek. In 1978, three friends left Alice Springs on an adventure exploring the Australian outback. Weeks later, a man walking his dog stumbled across their bodies in a remote area of bushland in North Queensland. They’d been hunted down and shot, one of the victims dying as he clutched hold of a tree. Police brought in to investigate were badly injured in a helicopter crash and soon after, the investigation stalled. The Courier-Mail explores one of Australia’s most forgotten mysteries: The Spear Creek murders. The killer is still out there.

Somewhat repetitive, but a good listen

I quite enjoyed it, however a number of aspects were repeated across each podcast which made it a bit frustrating to listen to. The information could have been recapped rather than directly given again and again. I would still recommend it.

Repetitive

Good story but the same thing gets told over and over again had to stop listening! Sad could have been a great podcast.
